300 cars handed to Gauteng police

2011-01-12 14:12

Johannesburg - Over 300 new cars were handed to Gauteng police on Wednesday by National Police Commissioner General Bheki Cele.

"These cars must be taken care of... these cars belong to the people of South Africa," Cele said at the handing over in Hillbrow, Johannesburg.

"You have the resources... South Africa must get smaller for criminals everyday," he said, addressing police officers.

This was the third lot of vehicles to be handed to Gauteng, which Cele said contributed to half of South Africa's crime statistics.

    Jolly good show, Comrade General Cele! I must say that Lt. Gen. Petros's new approach, which focuses heavily on visible and sector policing, is making a positive diffenence in Pta East.

      So visible that even Ministers (Read: Former presidential wives) can run them over a little easier

    Applaud you Comrade Bheki Cele and Mzwandile Petros.I have seen a serious improvement on crime prevention in Gauteng.Police vehicles are visible every 5 kilometres. I honestly feel safe than before.Big up for 3oo cars

    The vehicles will last as long and be as effective as the people that use them. Therefore management structures must have systems in place to police usage and possible abuse of these assets. As with most successful companies with 'tool of trade' vehicle fleets, there is a responsibility on the driver to ensure that the asset is cared for. With this responsibility also comes accountability and should a driver be involved in an accident deemed to be their fault or be guilty of abusing the asset, he/she must pay an excess out of their own pockets.

    Well done General Custer Cele, Just make sure they cannot exceed 150km/h in traffic or we would sit with embarrassed parliamentarians.

  • Cejewe - 2011-01-12 17:54
